Development to boost London housing supply

Development to boost London housing supply

Construction has started on a new property development in London that will boost the capital's housing stock.

The £78.4 million Lymington Fields housing project will create 418 new homes in Dagenham and follows the London's mayor's plans to release brown field sites to tackle the shortage of property in the city.

Developer Lovell and housing provider Home Group will oversee the creation of 116 affordable rental properties, 43 shared ownership homes and 259 private sales.

Mayor Boris Johnson explained the development is one of the largest regeneration projects and will provide much-needed low cost homes.

He added: "This former gravel pit is part of thousands of acres of land I'm releasing to double the number of homes being built for hardworking Londoners and ease demand for more good quality homes."

The homes have been designed by architects Pollard Thomas Edwards and are a mix of two, three and four bedroom houses and one and two bedroom flats.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801702105-ADNFCR
